National Trail Parks and Recreation District attempts to be a community leader in maintaining our natural resources through recycling. Maintaining and preserving our park lands and natural areas is one of our missions.
With that in mind we have entered into an agreement with Abitibi Consolidated to recycle paper and by doing so we will encourage ourselves and Clark County to recycle. But, we will also be paid for the effort in the amount of tonnage we can retrieve. What a win/win situation!
The Paper Retriever program is an easy, rewarding way to make a positive impact on our community. Here is how the program works:
The Paper Retriever® Program promotes recycling by placing distinctive green and yellow Paper Retriever bins in highly visible areas. NTPRD will then be paid for the recyclable paper we collect either from our own (NTPRD) paper or from community members.
Currently, the Paper Retriever program is in place at over 22 metropolitan areas in 14 states. By participating in the program, you will help reduce landfill use, save water, energy and jobs, leaving the world a better place for our children.
All paper can be recycled, with the exception of paper that is contaminated by food. This means office paper, magazines, catalogs, newspapers, envelopes, etc. are acceptable. The paper can be placed in the bins, but if shredded paper is being recycled it should be placed in a bag to reduce possible litter.
